What you need to know about a Yorkshire Terrier

If you would like a cute little dog, you are not alone! Many people love small dogs, not only because they are cute, but because they are great company. The Yorkshire Terrier is a small dog that has a life expectancy of 10-15 years. The dog breed originates from England, more precisely Yorkshire, from which the name of the small, cute dog breed comes.

The Yorkshire Terrier is a dog breed that dates back to the 19th century. They are typically energetic and want to play. That is why the Yorkshire Terrier is an excellent dog breed that fills the home with good energy and good company. The small, cute dogs love company and can get lonely, so it is a good idea to make sure you have enough time to be with the cute dog.

Where does the Yorkshire Terrier originate?

The Yorkshire Terrier is a mix of a Paisley Terrier and a Skye Terrier, which together have given the dog breed its unique and soft coat. Some believe that there is a bit of Maltese in the genes of the sweet, sociable dog. Although the dog breed originated in England, the dog breed was introduced to North America in 1872.

During the Victorian era in England in the 19th century, the Yorkshire Terrier was a very popular dog, and North American culture was heavily inspired by the genteel heyday of England. That is why the dog breed is widespread and popular worldwide.

How big can a Yorkshire Terrier get?

The dog breed is one of the smaller breeds, which can be advantageous for many families who do not want a big dog. The optimal weight for a Yorkshire Terrier is 3.2 kg, but they can weigh up to 3.5 kg. The size of the Yorkshire Terrier therefore does not fluctuate much, and it can be an advantage to have a small dog that does not take up too much space in the home.

With the right food for the dog and good exercise, there are rarely problems with weight and size.

That's how the dog is

The Yorkshire Terrier is a sweet and handsome dog that has a lot of energy despite its size. These terriers are not afraid of other dogs and they do not respect the size difference. You should therefore expect that your sweet dog may appear aggressive towards others if you do not socialize the dog properly.

Yorkshire Terrier puppies should preferably be socialized with other dogs so that they can learn to get along with other dogs from the start. You can achieve this by visiting a friend with a dog, where together in calm conditions you can let the dogs get to know each other. After that, Yorkshire Terrier puppies can benefit from going to a park with other dogs or possibly to a dog groomer.

You can expect to get a sweet little dog that is good-looking and has a good temperament. They are usually full of energy and need regular walks. They usually seek attention and love company.

How to care for your Yorkshire Terrier

Since the Yorkshire Terrier has a nice, shiny coat, you should expect to have to groom the dog's hair. The hair can easily become long and it can get in the way of the dog's eyes. A pleasant trip to the dog groomer is therefore recommended so that your dog can look nice and elegant.

You can choose to put the hair up in a small knot if it is long. The dog breed is best bathed once a week, so they can be clean and look good. This will especially be necessary after you take a good walk on a rainy day where the paws can get dirty.

Yorkshire Terriers do not need too much grooming, but it is important that you keep take care of the dog's ears and nails. This is of course something that the vet will check regularly, but it is still good to keep an eye on your dog's health in general.
